i just enable coolbits and do the other tweaking in the nvidia driver panel, and have them apply settings at startup, or edit the bios and change the clocks

Low level is faster than driver-level. Coolbits (control panel hack) is a driver-level. Use Rivatuner/Powerstrip's hardware-level overclocking.

i think that if both works there will be no one better. but since there r so many issues with the nvidia drivers, the low level is pretty much a good option. anyway, if youve not noticed yet, the rivatuner help on the settings is quite good, maybe you got something else from it.

I O/C my bios with NVIDIA BIOS EDITOR found @ guru3d.com and it worked very well to me. I can go to power save and come back with no problems

Ray Adams I believe (could be wrong) is the author I believe and I believe he rescently got his site back up. Might want to check it out for this type of thing. The bios saver is nice. It is quick and allows you to create a autoexec.bat in the event (I have done it twice) you get a little radical in your choice of vid bios.
